As mobile operators seek to extend their networks beyond the reach of power grids, they need to find alternatives to diesel energy. Find out more about the alternatives and viable practice for reference.

As an important participator in the global communications market, Huawei attaches great importance to energy conservation and environmental protection and has achieved a series of high-level accomplishments.


Green power, environmental protection and emission reduction are currently the hottest key words in the telecom industry. For CDMA networks, the need to balance these three factors while reducing CAPEX and OPEX has become imperative.

A survey by Cellular reveals that 60% of the demand for communication service derives from homes and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME). Constructing a network for home and SME subscribers that is high in bandwidth, low cost, and provides continuous indoor coverage is a prerequisite of market success.

Emissions of pollutants are on the rise along with energy consumption. "Green Huawei, Green Telecom, Green World" shows Huawei’s commitment to environment protection by ensuring environment-friendly telecom equipment.

Core network is the major network power consumer and carbon emitter. Optimizing core network equipment, including all auxiliary equipment, not only reduces OPEX, but also helps operators fulfill the social responsibility that has now become an integral part of corporate culture.

The bearer network normally contains large and costly core routing equipment and optical backbone equipment, a single piece of which consumes several kilowatts of electricity. To improve this, Huawei has succeeded in innovating network design, components, and equipment to conserve energy and space, and curtail bearer network TCO
